We hope everyone is keeping safe and taking care of themselves. Just a reminder to keep an eye out for elderly or unwell neighbours who may need a helping hand – especially at this time. Now is the time to be kind and neighbourly and to take care of each other.

The latest advice from the NHS is available here.

Food banks

Due to the unprecedented economic circumstances people are losing their jobs and struggling to buy food.  Donating a couple of food items to a local food bank could make the world of difference.

You can donate at Tesco. Otherwise, use this link to find a food bank near you.

Local shops

Please also support our local independent shops and businesses so that they can survive the turbulence and continue to provide services for us in the future.  For example:

  • A small start up like Cricklewood Coffee (at Cricklewood Station every weekday 6:30 am – 12:00 pm) will freshly grind coffee beans for us.
  • Slightly further afield, Cafe Macarong in Golders Green Road is another local independent coffee shop run by a young woman who bakes her own super delicious cakes.

… and not forgetting our wonderful local pharmacy in Pennine Drive, W. Price Chemist.
